Fiddler on the roof

26 April, the macaque was found sitting on the store room roof at Noah's Ark.

On 26 April, a macaque was sitting on the roof of Noah's Ark store room - from a distance we could see that it was injured and hungry.

How do we attend to an injured macaque?

The only thing we could do was to give him some fruits and he was contented.

Since then he disappeared, and a few days later he came back and this time the workers spotted him on the kitchen roof.

We would love to help him - but it was impossible for us to get on top of the roof to attend to a wild macaque. What if the workers get bitten or attacked?

29 April morning - the wild macaque that never had any human contact - entered into Raymund's kitchen (where Raymund normally prepares his meals) to ask for help.

The workers managed to carry him and placed him into a cage and brought it to the clinic.

Raymund attended to the macaque, he found several wounds on his legs and he got bitten badly on his right arm by some factory dogs at an oil palm plantation near Noah's Ark. The workers have seen him hanging around in the area.

We will do our best to provide the necessary medical care and treatment for him.

It's amazing - that a wild animal will approach you to ask for help.

Surprisingly this evening, when Raymund greeted him, the macaque gave his hand to Raymund to thank him.

Animals have their special ways of showing appreciation and they teach us so much that we take things for granted.
